What’s a keto milkshake?
A keto milkshake is a sugar-free frothy cold drink usually made of ice cubes, almond milk, and cream. It doesn’t require store-bought keto ice cream and can be made at 100% at home with the most simple ingredients. It is a delicious keto snack to refresh in summer or breakfast on the go.
How to make a keto peanut butter milkshake?
Yes, you can have peanut butter on a keto diet as soon as you are using unsweetened peanut butter with no added vegetable oils. However, even if natural peanut butter is keto-friendly, it still contains a decent amount of carbs so you have to use it sparingly. That is why this keto milkshake uses only 1 1/2 tablespoon of peanut butter. It brings out all the peanut butter flavor you are craving without adding too many carbs to your low carb milkshake.
Peanut butter – you can use any nut butter you like, almond butter is a great option too to decrease the carbs. I made this low carb milkshake many times, other options that I love are cashew butter, coconut butter, or almond butter.
Unsweetened almond milk – or unsweetened vanilla almond milk for a hint vanilla flavor.
Unsweetened cocoa powder
Chia seed – I won’t skip them even if they add 1 g net carb per serve, they thicken the milkshake and add proteins!
Heavy cream or use full-fat dairy-free coconut yogurt. Other options are full-fat Greek Yogurt or canned coconut cream.
Sugar-free crystal sweetener – I love to use Monk fruit crystal sweetener but you can also replace this by few drops of liquid stevia. Read my full review of Keto-friendly Sweeteners to learn some more!
Ice cubes – that is what makes the drink frothy like a milkshake without using sugar-free ice cream.
Keto milkshake with almond milk
This is a keto milkshake recipe using almond milk. In fact, unsweetened almond milk is the best option to create low carb smoothies or milkshake as it is very low in carbs.
When should I drink keto milkshake?
Honestly, I am having this keto chocolate peanut butter milkshake any time of the day. I love it for breakfast after a run to reload my body with protein and enjoy a fresh drink. It’s also a delicious treat in the afternoon during summer or a great dessert alternative when you crave something sweet quickly.

In a blender, add all the ingredients and blend until smooth and frosty. I always start with 3/4 cup ice cubes, blend and adjust depending on how frosty I want my milkshake.
Taste and adjust sweetness with an extra tablespoon of erythritol or stevia drops. Blend for a few seconds to combine and serve.
Serve immediately in 2 small milkshakes (or 1 large) with a drizzle of melted sugar-free chocolate, a drizzle of peanut butter, a dollop of dairy-free yogurt or unsweetened whipped cream, and chopped peanuts.
You can store the leftover in the fridge for up to 24 hours. The next day I won't be as frothy, bring back to the blender with few ice cubes, and serve immediately!
Freeze the leftover in a popsicle mold! It makes a delicious keto singe serve ice cream to snack on.
Nutrition panel is for 2 small milkshakes without the optional chia seeds. Seeds add nutrients but still 1g net carbs per serve.
